jj hit andrade in the face for 25 minutes straight and not only was andrade not hurt she felt chipper enough to propose marriage to her girlfriend immediately after the fight. p4p, jj is perhaps the most feather-fisted champ in the history of the ufc. what i'm saying is, she isn't murdering anyone.

Michelle just looked terrified while trading with someone bad enough to get outstruck by Jojo. If there's someone she can murder, it's Michelle.

Well where I live there was no way to watch it because the local fox affiliates don't show UFC on Fox cards. I can watch the fight nights on FS1 but nothing on regular Fox.

I've found my interest in the ufc waning. I'm not even sure why exactly but missing cards entirely is becoming more and more of an option.

It's definitely the reasons listed here. The last card was a week ago and it was a title fight away from being a solid PPV card. I have been slacking on keeping up with things and when I saw 227 was this Saturday my initial reaction was "No way they just ran a killer card."

It's a really lovely matchmaking spot, because Joanna doesn't really deserve another title shot but she's also beaten the rest of the top six in the division. Safest bet is the winner of Kowalkiewicz/Andrade is the next contender, and Esparza/Suarez is on the undercard, so you probably have Joanna fight the winner of that because she'll almost certainly murder either one of them and make her case for yet another shot.

Ah yes, the Fitch conundrum.

Why did they cut krylov in the first place? If I remember correctly, he had like one loss after like 3 or 4 finishes and was gone. His fights were fun. Did he leave after his contract was out?

they wouldn't pay him so he left after his contract was up iirc. then the ufc realised he was an excellent prospect in a dead division and brought him back.

It was a balance of pay, and that he wanted to spend more time in Ukraine near his family. It was almost the exact same situation as Horiguchi, except with ruples.

Krylov is not a world beater at all but he's good and young, and in a timeline where Jon Jones doesn't exist, Rumble Johnson is either selling weed or fighting at heavyweight and Cormier is a two division champ with an expiration date, the UFC needs him to round out the lhw rankings and I am glad he is back.

I would normally be worried, but when an olympic or college wrestler is doing a big weight cut, then I just assume they know what they are doing unless they actually miss weight.

The ABC's annual meeting is over, no changes to the unified rules of MMA, but there are 4 very minor policy changes.

Going to the scorecards vs a NC after a foul ends a fight - no change for us because the new policy (scorecards after the halfway point, down to the second on the clock) only impacts 1, 2, and 4-round fights. They have to change the unified rules for 3 and 5-round fights.

Greasing - the jelly they apply before the fighter enters the cage can now be re-applied between rounds, but only by the cutman.

KO definition - Current: arbitrary decision by the referee and/or commission. New: Fighter is physically unable to defend themselves = KO, fighter is not defending themselves (eg curling up) = TKO.

Referee authority after the final bell - In the rare case of a flagrant foul after the fight is over, if the inspectors from the AC have not yet re-entered the cage, then the ref can DQ a fighter.
